Ignoring the Laboratories of Democracy
Just a few minutes ago, Sen. McCain was on the floor of the Senate praising Texas’ medical malpractice reforms. By all accounts, Texas’ reforms have been largely successful in attracting and retaining doctors while helping keep costs down.
It’s been repeatedly pointed out that many of the Democratic health care reforms under consideration in Congress have been tried in states such as Massachussetts, Oregon and Maine with poor results and yet they are proceeding undeterred at the national level. But it’s also telling that Democrats continue ignore state level reforms that have been shown to work as well.
